The following statement was posted on the official website of the Group for Scientific Research into ME, led by Dr Ian Gibson MP, on Friday, 18 May:
The GSRME has now disbanded. The Group was formed with the express intention of undertaking an Inquiry into CFS/ME. The Inquiry has been completed and as such the members have now moved onto other projects. Please see the report of the Groups final meeting for further details. The Group would like to thank all those who participated in the Inquiry. Thank you for your oral and written evidence and for your support throughout. The Group is still waiting for responses from some Government Ministries and once these are collected they will be published on the Group’s website. Several of the Group members will remain active in ME campaigning through the APPG on ME. Much remains to be done in the political sphere, on the horizon are both the NICE and DWP guidelines, which the APPG on ME will be keeping a close eye on.
